2 Degrees of Separation: Transition risks for oil & gas in a low carbon world | Boston launch


Investors are invited to the Boston launch event on Tuesday, July 25th from 9:00am - 12:00pm for a new research report entitled: "2 degrees of separation: Transition risk for oil & gas in a low carbon world" - produced by the Carbon Tracker Initiative in partnership with Legal & General Investment Management, AP7, FRR, PGGM, PKA, and the Principles for Responsible Investment.
The research breaks new ground in providing investors with a detailed analysis of 69 oil and gas companies' alignment with a scenario where global warming is limited to 2 degrees Celsius. It also includes estimates of the proportion of future capital expenditure and production that falls outside a 2 degree carbon budget. At the event, we will present this research and discuss how investors can use it to make their company engagement activities more robust. 
This event is co-hosted by the PRI, Carbon Tracker, Wellington Management and supported by Ceres.
To request an invitation or for more information on this event, please contact Ben Pincombe
